YEARS AGO, A P.I. OUT OF CHICAGO
BROUGHT JUSTICE TO A DIRTY TOWN.
NOW HE’S GOING TO PAY.
A sawed-off shotgun blast to the face leaves one man dead—and reveals a secret that has pursued another across an ocean and set the world’s most ruthless criminal on his trail. The man needs the help of a great detective...but could even Sherlock Holmes save him now?
